John Cena’s return can – and should – wait

Yeah, fuck that.

Yeah, fuck that.

(Huge thanks to this report on

It’s not every surgical neck repair that ends with an athlete being able to get back into competition within four months. Sometimes it takes a year or more to heal, rehab, and be able to return in near-top physical condition. Oftentimes, even the year off doesn’t allow for 100 percent recovery. And an unfortunate number of these tales end in retirement, with no happily ever after.

John Cena was given a huge break. He had begun feeling numbness in his right arm due to a herniated disc — thankfully not a ruptured disc — which fragmented into his spinal column. (Does that sound familiar? Chris Benoit’s “Don’t try this at home” speech, anyone?)

TNA has a good track record of these type of things so Jarrett and Sting should both be either faceless or forgotten by the middle of October.

Ok, just Sting. -Jeremy
